INTERCLUB CROSS COUNTRY SERIES
The Interclub Cross Country Series is contested by 5 local running clubs consisting of Retford AC, Worksop Harriers, Clowne Road Runners, Handsworth Roadhogs and Killamarsh Kestrels. Each club hosts their own race and are between 5 and 6 miles long each. It only costs £10 to compete in this series and is a fully inclusive to members of all abilities. Teams are made up of upto 17 men and 17 ladies. The first 7 finishers of each team are 'counters' and have their finishing positions added together to give a team total, then the next 10 finishers each have 1 point deducted from the teams total. The aim is to accumulate the least amount of points in order to win. Each team can have no more than 2x 2nd claim runners and the first scoring 7 should be made up of at least 3 Vets (35 for women and 40 for me). Categories are split into Mens, Ladies and overall, which is mens and ladies points totals added together.
the ladies team are the defending series champions!!
